ἡρῷσσαι Λιβύων, ὄρος ἄκριτον αἵτε νέμεσθε,
αἰγίδι καὶ στρεπτοῖς ζωσάμεναι θυσάνοις,
τέκνα θεῶν, δέξασθε Φιλήτιδος ἱερὰ ταῦτα
δράγματα καὶ χλωροὺς ἐκ καλάμης στεφάνους,

ἅσς1᾽ ἀπὸ λικμητοῦ δεκατεύεται: ἀλλὰ καὶ οὕτως
ἡρῷσσαι Λιβύων χαίρετε δεσπότιδες.

— Paton edition

Heroines of the Libyans, girt with tufted goat-skins, who haunt this mountain chain, daughters of the gods, accept from Philetis these consecrated sheaves and fresh garlands of straw, the full tithe of his threshing; but even so, all hail to ye, Heroines, sovereign ladies of the Libyans.
